Mexican Liability Insurance Policies from Aviation Insurance Resources

Friday, November 30th, 2012

Did you know that while most aviation insurance policies include Mexico in their coverage, Mexican regulation requires a third-party liability policy be purchased from a Mexican-based insurance agency? Failing to comply with these requirements could result in heavy fines or even the impounding of your aircraft.

Fortunately, Aviation Insurance Resources (AIR) can help!

Through our partnership with MacAfee and Edwards, AIR can set you up with a Mexican liability insurance policy. MacAfee and Edwards is a Surplus Line Insurance Broker specializing in ALL LINES OF INSURANCE FOR MEXICO.
